Alright, in my last post I asked which mini you wanted to see in an unboxing next. I got a few responses between this site, Facebook, and Reddit, and the results were unanimous. Everyone wanted Grim Ironjaw for the next unboxing. So… here we go!
Last week Forge World put three new Blood Bowl items up for pre-order. These items included the Orcland Raiders Orc team (which was really just the boxed set Orcs with some resin pieces added to change their visual style slightly), the Goblin Secret Weapons pack (woohoo!), and the Gouged Eye neoprene pitch. I am a sucker for anything Blood Bowl related, so I made sure to get my order in early so as not be disappointed.
Welcome to another thrilling episode of June Forge World Unboxings! Last time we looked at the new, and VERY large Hakflem Skuuttlespike. Today we will keep with the Skaven theme and look at the first of the team booster packs from Forge World.
As you are probably aware, Forge World has recently put several new releases up for pre-order. Well, today I got a box in the mail, and that means it is time for more unboxings! I am going to do things a little different this time due to the amount of pieces that have come in. I will be posting a new unboxing every couple of days until I run out of new minis… and since I have another Forge World order arriving next week, that might take a while. First up is the Skaven Star Player, Hakflem Skuttlespike.
AKA The New Goblin Team Unboxing
Well… it has been a while since my last post. What can I say? Motivation is hard to come by when you are in pain. Anyway, today’s post is a slightly belated Goblin team unboxing. The team came out a few weeks ago, along with the Death Zone Season 2 rule book. You may have seen a number of unboxing posts by now, but how about one more?!
Like other Blood Bowl teams, the Goblin team comes with twelve minis using six unique sculpts. What the Goblin team does that is a little different is all the heads are fully interchangeable. This is a nice break from previous teams as it allows for a little more customization with minimal conversion effort. Anyway, time to get this thing started.
After fairly regular begging on interwebs forums and the Facebook Blood Bowl group, I have FINALLY managed to get my hands on a Grak and Crumbleberry set. Grak and Crumbleberry were only available to purchase from Warhammer World in Nottingham and since I live in Texas, there was no way I was getting my hands on them without help. They arrived in the mail today and it is time for another unboxing!
Well, the goblin secret weapons aren’t so secret anymore. Today Warhammer Community unveiled the upcoming Forge World goblin secret weapon players for Blood Bowl. There will be a bomber, chainsaw player and ball-and-chain looney. The chainsaw player was teased previously in the Rumor Engine, with many correctly guessing the hooked chain blade to be a bad-moon shaped chainsaw.
No sign of a pogo stick player yet.
The secret weapon minis will go on sale first at this month’s Warhammer Fest event, no word on pre-order or release date.
When Games Workshop announced the release of the Bright Crusaders team for Blood Bowl, there was quite a bit of grumbling across the interwebs. Some people were a little irritated that with only four official teams released for Blood Bowl, Games Workshop was now releasing a second Human team. While I can sympathize with the feeling, I decided to go ahead and order the Bright Crusaders team from Forge World. Well, a couple of days ago, a box from the UK arrived on my doorstep, so here we go with another Blood Bowl unboxing.
A few months ago, Games Workshop showed of the 3D modeling images of the new Deathroller mini. I have to admit, I really was not very impressed. Then not too long ago, they started showing off the finished mini painted by Jonathan Taylor-York. Again I have to admit, I really was not very impressed. Jonathan’s paint work was fantastic as is all of his work, but when I looked at the new Deathroller, all I could think of was the Christopher Nolan “Tumbler” Batmobile. It just looked like way too modern of a machine to be on the Blood Bowl pitch. With all of that in mind, I had actually decided to not buy the new Deathroller, but then the Deathroller went on pre-order and I have no self control… so here we are with another box from Forge World sitting on my desk.
